      Preflop: Hero is BB with 5 A
      7 folds, SB raises to $0.30, Hero calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.60) 7 K T (2 players)

      $0.60 pot ($0.03 rake)
      Final Board: 7 K T 2 8
      SB showed Q 6 and lost (-$0.30 net)
      Hero showed 5 A and won $0.57 ($0.27 net)

      SB is a TAGy player under 100 hands who has 100% SB steal over 4 amples,

      I decided just to call PF because I have possition I usualy play Ax hand appart from AJs+ like this. I was reading an artical about Showdown Value the other day, not sure if I should bet the Flop or try and take my AHigh to SD?

      Bet flop. Your Ace high with 5kicker isn't usually good on river, as opponent has some better Ax-hands and even small pp's. So if you call bb you bet the flop.

      Hello BigAl123456,

      Not much to comment here, I like your Check-behind cause clearly he could be even Check/Calling there Kx/Tx hands. Vs anything else we are most likely ahead with Ace high.

      Best Regards.
